I Dont like it but i have to do it

I need to open access to a no username and password to my application.

What i did was i added a userkey field on my users model that can be
past
via a get or post method from another site.
that will then find the correct user and log them in as if they had put
in
there user name and password.

Now i am using device to log in my users. but i am not sure where to
append
the second login method.

in my user controller i have

*def login_bypass
id = params[:id]
@u = User.find_by_**userkey(id)
if @u == nil
flash[:error] = t(:please_contact_support)
redirect_to login_path
else
// device log in with @u info
flash[:success] = t(:welcome_to_the_site)
redirect_to users_path
end
end *

any one know how should i go on?

I don’t know for your specific question but you really should look for
information about how to let other open authenticated sessions. You
might
find stuff and take inspiration from Facebook, Tweeter, GitHub or
whatever website offering public API.
